|Benny had mud in his forelock, forehead and years. I'm not sure how he managed that.|
The horses will soon be locked off of the pasture which also complicates life. On a normal morning I currently put Emi out in the field with her small helping of grain and a pile of hay. Roz stays locked in the paddock with his large helping of grain. Before leaving for work I go back out to turn Roz out in the pasture. This keeps me from standing around while he eats. This program has been working great. For the winter I plan to tie Emi up as soon as she finishes her grain. Not only will this keep her out of Roz's food but it is also good for her patience...I just need to get up earlier in the morning.
Roz has been getting more muddy by the day. I knocked the worst of it off tonight and put his brand new blanket on. Now we just need to make it to the winter equinox and then the spring time change. Spring...longer days, green grass, dapples, shedding, horse shows, foals and time to start the baby girl. I can't wait!
